    Slight highway hum at 65+, i've only had them for like an hour now so i can't comment too much but so far i like them. The pictures don't do the tire justice, the tread is alot deeper than it appears.

    These are 265/75/16 on a 3in ProComp Lift.

    i have the exact same set up and they're fine. They'll start to hum a bit more the longer you wear them in...but it's not bad.

    They look good! I've read nothing but good reviews on those tires, and I'll probably try them next in 255/85/16

    Had tons on the Taco's.... new truck is pretty stock
    I ran a set of them. Got 40000 out of em, but after the 1st 1/2 of the tread was gone they sucked a$$ in rain+snow and got a LOT louder around 30-45mph (strange IMO). They also load up with mud real easy and leave you spinning. Overall, a decent AT tire, but not very good for those that take their rig off road a lot- they chunked on the rocks pretty bad too.

    Very nice. I've been thinking about getting these. What load range did you get?

    These tires in 265/75/16 come either in a P metric or an LT:

    the P metric is a 4 ply standard load rating (2756 max load) Tread Depth 15/32's

    the LT comes in either a 6ply (c range 2470 max load) or 10 ply (e range 3415 max load) Tread Depth of 18/32nd's

    Being that my truck is a 4cyl and will never see heavy towing i went with the P-metric tire, and it was cheaper....

    The P-metric tire was 129.00 (ea) - 566.32 OTD
    The LT Tire C load was 158.00
    I didn't price the 10 ply because really its too stiff of a tire for our trucks and entirely overkill.

    The P-metric tire is actually branded for a SUV application but it'll suit my needs fine. I just hope whoever said that it doesn't clean out the mud good is wrong, or at least it cleans it out alot better than the stock crappy dunlops because they will see the mud...no rocks though.

    If you do use tires around the sharp rocks and such the cooper S/T-C is the same tire, just "Cut/Chip resistant"
